A lovely place
Everything as advertised. Very clean, great communications with owners/ managers. Nice warm weather, mild breezes. Didn’t get to sit out on lawn facing ocean as the grounds are being restored.
We appreciate the 5-star review despite the fact that this guest did not have the pleasure of lounging in the courtyard. That is now an option again, and the view of the ocean is as fabulous as always--but due to recent adverse weather, direct access to our beach is not possible. It's a 5 min. walk (sidewalk and short path through a park) to get to a larger sand beach to our east. During our current end-of-year visit to Maui, we have been pleased to see a turtle resting along our shoreline and whales cavorting in the bay. (The whales are most readily seen from a whale watch cruise.) Aloha from Sue and Mort
This property is amazing. The view is spectacular and the kitchen is so well stocked. The only supplies we bought were avocado oil and coffee. The oil we left for the next guests! There are lots of pots and pans. We cooked most of our meals in the kitchen. Costco was our go to for groceries and gas. We saved over 60 cents per gallon.
The pool and grassy area over looking the ocean are great. My favorite part of the week was sitting in a lounge chair in the grass reading and listening to the ocean!
The team that takes care of the building and grounds is incredible. Never stayed anywhere that did a better job!
We were there the weekend that Maui had a heat wave. Be aware that the air conditioner struggles to keep it cool when temperatures are high.
Other than heat we were so thrilled with this place and hope to return in a year to see whales.
We are pleased to read about our guests enjoying the lounge chairs in the courtyard as well as some of the amenities inside the unit. We agree that exceptionally high heat can challenge our A/C, but we have a high capacity unit which will put a dent in the discomfort. Not as much as central air would, but certainly a whole lot better than being without A/C altogether. Fortunately, it is rarely needed, so most of the time the windows can be left open at night for the refreshing breeze and the music of the ocean. We hope that Ruth and her fellow guests will be able to have an A/C-less stay when they return. Mahalo from Mort and Sue
Excellent Place to Stay in Maui
Everything was perfect. It was our first time in Hawaii and Maui and our stay here turned out to be our best decision.
I think the location was superb. Central to a lot of attractions in Maui. Road to Hana, Plantation, Zip lining, Helicopter tours, Sunrise, Snorkeling etc....all within 25 mins drive. Also, another positive, this is away from the hustle-bustle of the west maui. Some people may prefer to stay in West maui which is filled with modern resorts and lots of busy and fancy restaurants. This was much more quiet and peaceful location. Paia is 25 mins -- whole foods and costco etc.
Beautiful views from the condo. Everything was well maintained and where it's supposed to be. Sue and Mort are great. They sent a lot of helpful documentation beforehand.
One slight negative: The internet was very spotty...going in and out. I am pretty sure it was not because of the issue in the Unit (more likely the cable company). Honestly this is not a major issue since the idea of a having good vacation time is to disconnect.
While not everything that vacationers might want to do on the island is 25 min. or less from our condo, we do appreciate the point that this guest was making. You will be centrally located on the island if you stay at Mort's Port, which means that driving times can be considerably less than from some of the more populated locales. Problems with the WiFi? Simple answer is to call Mort. Even from IL, he is usually able to give tips by phone for better connection in the rare situation of slow or intermittent reception. We want all who stay at Mort's Port to decide it's an "excellent place," as did this reviewer.
Nous avons adoré le condo, qui est très bien situé, propre et bien équipé. L’endroit est calme, la piscine et le terrain est au petits soins avec le personnel d’entretien. Je le recommande fortement.
This review was written in French. If it hasn't been translated into English by VRBO, here's my response to Annie: Merci beaucoups!! My limited recollection of French from decades ago tells me that her review is nothing but positive. Suzanne
We really enjoyed our stay. We would highly recommend Mort’s Port to anyone looking for a great place to stay in Maui!
It is very clean, well equipped, and quiet.
Check it out!
We're pleased that this couple enjoyed their stay at Mort's Port, and we hope others will take their advice and check us out. Aloha from Mort and Sue
Well equipped, accurate info/photos in description, great location for us!
Just finished up our stay at Mort's Port. We really liked the central location, and that it's not in a busy area like Kihei or Lahaina. There is a lengthy beach for morning walks heading east from the property, or just sit with your toes in the sand. I followed a large green sea turtle around while snorkeling right in front of the property! While we don't eat out a lot, there are a few restaurants within walking distance which we took advantage of a couple of times. But when cooking in, we appreciated the well equipped kitchen, and the grill area overlooking the ocean is fantastic! Sue and Mort take care of their place and want to be sure that those who stay here enjoy their visit. Thanks for sharing your place with us, when our plans call for a return to Maui, I hope it will be available for us to stay.
We also appreciate everything about the location of our condo that this reviewer has highlighted. Maalaea certainly has a quiet charm about it, so far avoiding the noise and bustle that characterize towns to the east and west. By stocking our kitchen with small and large appliances, utensils, plates, pans, etc., similar to what we enjoy at home, we have also managed to please most of our guests who occasionally prepare their own meals. And that new outdoor gas grill is as efficient as it is beautiful. We want all of our renters to consider Mort's Port to be their home away from home

Monet ihmiset nauttivat päivittäin kävellä pitkin rantaviivaa Maalaea Bay. Hiekkaranta alkaa meidän huoneisto monimutkainen ja ulottuu idässä aina Kihei (n. 4 mailin). 7 Condo rakennukset meidän länteen eivät ole hiekkaranta, mutta on jalkakäytävä tien, että ihmiset oleskelevat nämä asunnot voivat päästä lähtökohta niiden rantaviivaa kävelyyn. Suurimman osan ajasta Maalaea Bay on rauhallinen tarpeeksi uinti, snorklausta, melonta, ja boogie- tai mela - lennolle.
